It depends on the language you are using. It is possible to create
standalone executables or launchers. Standalone executables need a few
shared libraries (you can download those as a separate package) to be
able to run on other's platforms.

You'll want to read the docs about the Create Executable menu item for

The module language gives you the most flexibility. 

If your program is written in one of the PLT languages, it is easy to
convert it to a module, just put

  (module filename-without-extension mzscheme ... code goes here ...)

around your program. If you have multiple files, use require instead of
load. You may also need to add these requries to the top of the module:

  (require (lib "mred.ss" "mred") (lib "class.ss"))

Hope that helps.
